  • PLEASE NOTE: We are a working studio. Please help us by:
    • Limiting your “non-quilting” guests, as they can be distracting for you, other renters, and our working staff.
    • Be considerate of those around you - some quilters aren’t always comfortable having someone watch or ask questions.
    • Realize that we try our best to schedule so there a “cushion” of space between quilters. If you are running long, we will ask that you book another session if there is someone coming in after you.
  • Renters must understand and agree to the terms above or in any future versions. Last updated June 11, 2019.
